    Unfortunately I will be working down south and unable to shoot from my new 2 yard penalty from the last calcutta! Can I phone bids in?

    At the last shoot, it was 2 yards minus your ATA yardage. I'm sure someone will answer your question properly.

    Joe, Did you read the new rules?

    1.) If you won a previous Calcutta, you have to shoot 7/8 oz #9's.
    2.) Madonna can not bid on Rosey
    3.) If the auctioneer makes any rude comments about you, he has to buy your shells.

    I HAVE been shooting 7/8 oz of 9's Rosey. You have been peeking at my box labels, haven't you.

    Rich- the club handicap is 2 yards less than your ATA average. Plus any yardage earned at the previous Williams County Calcutta in January. Non- ATA shooters hurl from 23 yards.

    I have a starting bid I will phone in from Florida on the Rose Man of $100. Maybe get him cheaper on a wild card before everyone wakes up?

    Joe, Florida??? Any true shooter would go there in March (State shoot)....not now!

    Sorry, I thought I saw 1 3/8 oz of #9's on your box.

    Matt, I shoot Superhandicap 7 1/2's.

    Jim: Yes, I will be there.

    Double Trouble: January's had about 40- 50 shooters with an average selling price of $60.00...usually have about $2,500 or so in calcutta plus other options. No load restrictions...just be safe and don't disrupt the harmony of the squad!!! Looks like mid 30's for temp-should be a great day.

    Big Don you can shoot your Model 12 well once you start hitting the target, you can come and practice today and Saturday so you are ready for Sunday. Roger since you are bring targets today you can practice too, which I'm sure you will since you are there.
    Hope to see you all on Sunday.

    Thanks Joe but I don't think any of your guns have them new fancy let go triggers in them. That old Mod 12 might have a few more good scores left in her if I treat her nice and tell her that Rosey is bringing his throw away guns.

    I think Joe planned this trip on purpose just so he wouldn't have to shoot his new yardage.

    BigDon, I'll bring my 870, you can shoot that. The trigger is a little rough, so you'll forget all about that "let go" stuff.

    A simple gun for a simple mind.

    Oh Big Don- not so fast! I DO have a fancy let go trigger! And it sits in a gun that has a great reputation in the family, that being the Remington 1100 that my dad bested the field of over 2000 with in the Ohio Handicap at Vandalia in 1977. I remember it well, the day Elvis died! It is begging for some action, and we would be honored for you to burn the cobwebs out of it.

    Adam-
    Make sure you clock out when you're surfing trapshooters. Your dad will catch you everytime, he's one of the troublemakers on here.
